When listening to »Music For The Univited« by the British producer Leon Vynehall, it’s easy to forget that it’s only his very first LP. Hard to believe that young house-musicians can still sound this mature, this self-confident and, yes, even this original. In comparison to last year’s rather straight and crashing debut for AUS music, the tracks are now made of a lively and rollicking, yet somewhat controlled playfulness, seeming to scream from every single bar that there’s still room to conquer within the genre. Once again, this record proves that one doesn’t need to (or even shouldn’t) rely on nostalgic routines when trying to step up with a statement. In »Inside The Deku Tree«, the opener, we hear dry staccato-strings meet prancing synthesizers (in almost easy-listening style), but it all seems to happen somewhat unintendedly. And still, it’s so coherent that there’s much more to discover than just another variation of the intro-concept. Leon Vynehall always gives us the impression that he keeps opening one room after another, and each one is filled with driving motions and scattered melodies, so that we’re invited to happily sing along without having to feel embarrassed.
